Figure 2 – Transoesophageal echocardiogram long axis view and 3D zoom on face view of the mitral valve presenting a significant thickening of mitral bioprosthetic cusps due to thrombotic material deposition, leading to severe obstruction of the prosthetic valve and a large mural thrombus covering the left atrial posteroseptal wall (pointed with an arrow). BPMV: Bioprosthetic Mitral Valve; LA: Left Atria; LV: Left Ventricle.
